SHEBOYGAN — The congregations of Sheboygan's Arise and Crossroads Community churches will soon have new homes.
Arise, formally known as Southside Alliance Church, will move into the former McClone building on Erie Avenue in November depending on renovations. Crossroads Community Church will then move into the former Arise building on County Road A in the town of Wilson.
Crossroads has a large congregation of nearly 1,000 people and Arise has a congregation of 150 people. Crossroads spent its first seven years operating out of a movie theater before moving to Lake Country Academy, where it has rented space to host weekly services. Arise has been in its 44,000-square-foot location on County Road A since 1999.
Pastor John Teschan from Arise Church and Pastor Jeff Jaeger from Crossroads Community Church both called it situation a "win-win."
Both churches offer services in-person and online for those who do not yet feel comfortable gathering in-person.
